Marc Bouchkov, artist in residence

“Artist in Residence Marc Bouchkov, who won several prizes, was not afraid of the high technical requirements of Korngold’s Violin Concerto. With superior violin playing, intense enthusiasm, musical vigor, and Viennese refinement, he let Korngold’s demanding score appeal to the imagination, so that the music took off until Bouchkov flew off in the last movement like a savage highwayman who conjured up treasures everywhere from the ingenious thicket of the finale. What a fantastic violinist! Encouraged by the applause, Bouchkov decided to play another encore: Ysaÿe’s Third Sonata, which took possession of the hypnotized hall at the same time serene and fiery. Bouchkov’s playing is a fascinating combination of perfect instrumental mastery and an uninhibited, imaginative, and impetuous artistic spirit. When he tells ‘stories’ on his violin, you are by definition hanging on his every word. “
